On our last day at the beach, Isabella started to scrunch and shimmy from Todd's lap, over his leg, and face-down into the blanket. It's the first time that we really saw her on the move.
We have noticed her shimmying a little when playing on her play mat - but this was a giant effort to get across his leg!
She is getting stronger. And the things she is now doing have been happening by leaps and bounds in a short period of time. Rapid-fire development!!
Isabella recently started rolling from back to front...
She doesn't just shimmy and scoot herself off of the activity mat anymore. She rolls and twists her way off -- and then does a 180 to boot! When she started - she her head was under the toys and feet facing the camera.
She is pushing up on her hands and knees with a little bit of rocking back and forth. So - what comes next?? Crawling immediately followed when Mercer started doing this. yikes!
Maybe the Johnny Jumper will hold her over for awhile so she loses interest in crawling!?! Not that we don't want her to crawl -- it just changes EVERYTHING!
She's having a blast in the jumper... and Mercer is too (as seen in this video)~
